From what I understand, Betty was in a pretty dark place during that era and was battling demons and losing her house and just needed some quick cash.

I was under the impression a small group of tapers did purchase the storage with the tapes so they would be in the hands of those who appreciate the music.

I could be wrong, but I remember reading on all that on a few occasions.

ok, I thought the dude who bought them and then stored them in wet/soaked conditions wants $1,000,000 for them.

Those tapes should be liberated, the "owner" can find his own way home

You meant the guy from The New Yorker article? I believe that's totally different. And that guy definitely has a screw loose with that asking price!
